Amazon, Ebay and Wages of War: The Business of Battle

A very long time ago, i had a disc with the game Wages of War: the Business of Battle. But time is merciless and the CD was lost.

And now, i decided to make myself two gifts for the new 2019 year:

On Amazon from the USA – new boxed edition

On EBay from France – used CD with user manual
